Mini trampolines, the go-to fitness tool for people seeking a joint-friendly cardio bounce

By Reuters, June 16, 2014

(Reuters) - Mini trampolines, the go-to fitness tool for people seeking a joint-friendly cardio bounce, are also adding spring to the push-ups, planks and lunges of boot camp and interval workouts.

Deborah Horton, a group fitness instructor at Crunch fitness in New York City, leads a 60-minute mini trampoline, or rebounder, class called Urban Rebounding that folds planks, jumping jacks and hamstring curls into and between cardiovascular intervals.

“Rebounding is a non-impact cardio workout on a surface so soft you can bounce a raw egg on it and it won’t break,” said Horton.

It offers a softer landing than high-impact cardio workouts, from running to high intensity interval training on hard ground, which can also be hard on the body.

Love at First Bounce: The Benefits of Rebounding

By Heidi L. George, April 24, 2014

I first heard about rebounding last year while listening to the Extreme Health Radio show.  Rebounding is jumping on a trampoline, which I am sure many of us did as kids. I certainly have found memories of hanging out with my best friend, spending hours jumping and laughing on her trampoline during the summer months.

 Fast forward to twenty years later. My partner and I went on a vacation and stayed at an amazing house we found through the Airbnb website. Not only was this home hidden in nature and surrounded by tall pine trees and mountains, but they also had a rebounder.  This was serendipitous because on our drive up we had a discussion about rebounding and if it was something we wanted to try. Now we had the perfect opportunity to test it out.

The bellicon Is Fun

By bellicon, March 20, 2014

We have a large trampoline in the backyard that we love. We also have a mini one for the kids in the playroom. Both are fun and both give you a mini workout.
But the difference with the Bellicon is how easy it is! Most trampolines this size are stretched so tight that there is not a lot of bounce- but with this one- you can fly! It is so springy and cushy- there is practically no Impact!

Maxim about the springless bellicon rebounder

By bellicon, November 18, 2010

No Springs Attached - A new trampoline uses bungee cords for a perfect bounce. Springs? Springs?!?
We don’t need no stinkin’ springs!
The Bellicon trampoline cans the classic coils in favor of elastic bungee bands that offer a gentler recoil. The result is a softer, more pillowy bounce that coddles your joints as you hop through long workouts and short show-off sessions."
